Drawing Horses

In DRAWING HORSES, children’s book illustrator Ruth Sanderson demonstrates her method of drawing realistic horses in 25 step-by-step lessons, with commentary and tips in each lesson, as well as details of her pencil techniques. This 80-page book includes photo reference that she has taken of many different breeds, starting with heads, and moving on to full body and action poses. The artist demonstrates how to interpret and simplify the information in reference photos, and how to spot and fix distortions. Basic horse anatomy, body parts, and proportions are covered, as well as detailed tips on eyes, ears, nostrils and leg positions. This how-to-draw horses book is suggested for ages 10 and up and is sure to delight both beginning and more experienced artists.
